HBO Max add-on will be available on YouTube TV at launch

Earlier this year, HBO’s parent company WarnerMedia finalized an agreement with YouTube TV to bring their HBO Max content to the live TV streaming platform. And today, YouTube TV confirmed that customers will indeed be able to add it to their subscription on May 27. The service broke the news on Twitter, simply saying, “Westeros and so much more is waiting for you! “

If you haven’t looked in to HBO Max, it’s worth checking out. It has all the shows and content you can usually find on HBO, plus a number of licensed shows like the entire runs of Friends, The Big Bang Theory, South Park, Rick & Morty, every DC movie and Studio Ghibli movies. And on top of all that, there are several original shows.

The HBO Max add-on will cost an extra $14.99 a month, but you can actually get it for $11.99 a month if you sign up straight through HBO. Of course, it wouldn’t be available through the YouTube TV app that way, so you have to decide if that feature is worth $3 a month.

WarnerMedia reached a similar deal with Hulu just a few weeks ago.
